Phase 4: Preferred Concept Option
Public engagement on the proposed final concept for the Dawson Park and Kinnaird Ravine Master Plan was completed in November 2017 to fine-tune the program and its features. The preferred concept was shaped by public input and ideas shared in earlier project phases to reflect a shared vision and identity for the park.
Phase 3: Concept Options
In May 2017, the City hosted public engagement activities that focused on refining the park vision and identity, as well as getting feedback on two distinct concepts for the park. Activities included an open house on May 30, stakeholder meetings, an online survey, and an online mapping tool. The feedback collected from this phase will be used to develop a final vision statement for the park and a preferred concept that will be presented in Phase 4 in fall 2017.
